NHS Scotland Cancels Fewer Operations Due To Resource Problems

"In December 2018 only 600 or 2.4% of all operations were cancelled due to ‘Non-clinical/Capacity reasons.’ This was down from 3.4% in November 2018 and from 3.2% in December 2017. Remember a 1% drop is around a third of the previous 3.2% and 3.4% figures and means around 300 patients. Those cancelled for clinical reasons were also down slightly on the previous month while those cancelled by the patient were up."
